Yesterday, I tried to make something for Heather's OLW challenge and failed. I'll try again later today, but in the meantime, let's take a look at a Christmas card.
Lovely as a Tree by StampinUp (no egregious exclamation point because only I am allowed to use those) is one of the greatest classic stamp sets of all time. It's one of the first sets I bought from SU, and it'll be mine forever because it simply has to be in the Great Craftroom in the Sky.
Ordinarily, I use design elements in threes, but today, we're focusing on three sets of two: two trees, two rhinestones, and two lines of text. The layout is very asymmetrical, but the sentiment panel is actually centered horizontally on the card on purpose because it lends a bit of stability to the design. It and the inner tree both lay on the imaginary Lines of Thirds, an arrangement that also stabilizes or anchors the design in the lower left sweet spot.
This is my last unposted card, so I need to get busy making stuff. Hopefully, my muse will come back to me today. Alas, she appears to have gone on vacation!
Have a lovely weekend.
